Bovine Colostrum Vs. Traditional Antiviral Drugs & Supplements

Have you been looking for a natural, broad-spectrum antiviral supplement that delivers consistent results year-round? Check out the bovine colostrum products from Sovereign Laboratories, the leading supplier of vital health supplements, including its patented colostrum supplement Colostrum-LD and antiviral supplement Viralox® which have been shown to help fight viral infections and modulate immune function for better overall health.

What Are the Natural Antiviral Properties of Colostrum?

Although some health supplement manufacturers claim to provide support against viral infections (i.e., colds and flu), there's no "magic potion." In fact, there's no cure for the common cold, which is caused by viruses. Many people feel reassured by taking health supplements marketed as natural antivirals, yet these products provide only limited support. Most over-the-counter supplements only minimally relieve symptoms; they do nothing to eradicate the infection. The same can be said for OTC flu medications – patients feel better because the symptoms are minimized, not because the infection is gone.

Moreover, natural remedies, including herbal supplements "boost" the immune system by overstimulating it. This is definitely NOT what you need or want. Over-stimulation of the immune system is counter-productive to the body's natural ability to rid itself of infectious pathogens. Instead, the desired action is a balancing of the immune system.

The powdered colostrum dietary supplement Colostrum-LD® and colostrum-derived peptide oral spray Viralox® offer effective, science-backed, natural antiviral support which helps the body rid itself of the infection and balance the immune system. These proven health supplements are also effective against numerous bacterial infections. Colostrum does this by "teaching," or instructing the body's immune system to destroy these pathogens. Sovereign Laboratories recommends Colostrum-LD® in powdered form (not capsules) since the powder begins to work on any pathogens that are inhabiting the mouth, and continues to work all the way through the G.I. tract. Conversely, capsules can only start their action in the small intestine.

Furthermore, studies indicate that bovine colostrum is at least three times more effective against influenza than conventional flu vaccines. Unlike a flu shot, which takes 7-14 days to become fully effective, Colostrum-LD® goes to work immediately. And because flu viruses are continually mutating, vaccine development cannot keep pace. On the other hand, the immune components in colostrum help the immune system react quickly to fend off new forms of the flu virus. This makes it the ideal supplement for broad-spectrum immune support, particularly in a world full of new and diverse pathogens.

Why Is Colostrum-LD an Effective Natural Antiviral Supplement?

Let's face it – the market is stocked with a wide range of health supplements, natural antivirals, and flu remedies, all of which claim to deliver results when you're feeling your worst. None of these products contain immunoglobulins (natural antibodies), lactoferrin, or colostrum-derived peptides (also known as PRPs), the most powerful immune modulating components in colostrum. The PRPs stimulate the production of natural killer (NK) cells which help destroy pathogens. Colostrum-LD® contains a minimum of 4.5-5% PRPs and these components are protected by a proprietary liposomal delivery (LD) system for maximum effectiveness. LD ensures that colostrum will bypass the harsh stomach acids and circulate throughout the body, reach the organs and cells quickly, and remain bioavailable for an extended period of time. As a result, Colostrum-LD® has been proven to be at least four times more effective than non-LD colostrum supplements.

Sovereign Laboratories recommends supplementing with powdered Colostrum-LD daily to maintain good gut health and a balanced immune system. But for those times when germs are everywhere, such as during flu season, or when everyone at daycare, school, and work, are coughing and sneezing, a little extra help may be necessary. Viralox is a concentrated PRPs oral spray, and with consistent use, these colostrum-derived peptides offer an effective and quick solution to infectious illnesses. Studies have demonstrated PRPs to reduce illness 74% and antibiotic usage by 84% in children in a daycare setting.
